How to Tag Your Custom Short Links

Video Transcript:

Hello this is Derric from Rebrandly[DOT]com, and today I wanted to show you how to use and setup tags on your links to help you kind of sort through the hundreds and hundreds of links that you might be creating for your business, or with other team members even inside your business.

So as you can see I'm in the Rebrandly[DOT]com dashboard - This is the Rebrandly-Rebrandly account, and we've got some links created here. So here's one that goes to a page on the segment to have people upvote us - So maybe I want to go into this link and I want to tag it a little bit differently so that I know that it's from the segment.

So I'd go into the link at the edit button, as you just saw. And you can see we hit the gear icon that pulls out our data tags currently in beta mode. This will be in full swing later. Then we're going to, because we don't have a tag yet, create a new tag called "segment". Choose a color, this one looks great, hit "create".

Now, this tag sticks with us - We can save it, save the link again. And if we go back to our dashboard we will be able to see the color of the link and then if you hover over it you'll be able to see the name of it and then of course if you search "segment" in the search bar this link comes up of course it comes up, for two different reasons here, but the links are searchable and in just a short period of time you will also be able to show tags and sort by name so we will be able to filter from tags and have some advanced filtering features there so this could be handy if you wanted to have to say list of things that are pieces of curated content versus our own blog site content versus sales-oriented thing versus stuff that we're going to share on social media, and the list goes on and on and on.

So here's another one that we use with Q which is one of our partner promotion kind of sources, and so you can see that there are lots of other opportunities, guest blog post we did, our own blog, and upload promo you can easily come through things sort through them and figure out and find what you're looking for.
That's it with tags. If you have any other questions about that do please feel free to leave them in the comments below.
In order to use this feature, you obviously need to have the Rebrandly URL shortener which you can download a Rebrandly[DOT]com. You know our branded URL shortener helps you create branded links and share them online for increase brand awareness and click-through. Looking forward to seeing you guys on the platform and let me know if you have any questions.
